Hm it smells I think theres an update on Rhys' Sewer Railway

Postby British Rail » Wed Jun 20, 2007 7:53 pm

Hi there guys, well as many of you know I am currently modelling Rhielffordd y Mawnog and Masters Way but I just had to dive into the bigger gauges. I've started the baseboard and is 4' by 1' 13 inchs. I'm still deciding on the track plan and type of railway. I'm thinking of a farm railway etc.


I'll keep you posted!

A slight change of plan but I've been having a gander at some photos from a real life Sewer NG railway and I must say I'm tempted but some people would say I'm copying Ben so I'm not sure :? Heres two track plans, I like the first track plan because of simplicity but would it bore me to death when exhibiting? The secong one is a z shape and is a little more complex but I'm not sure which one to go for?

They both look okay; I've seen a couple of layouts with the top arrangement and they're mainly concentrated on the scenery. If in operational doubt I'd say go for the lower one, it's still nice and simple but you've got a couple of areas to keep stock on show.

I might have the top line as a through line running into a fiddle yard using some left over 00 track from Masters Way as it wouldn't be on show! I'm talking about the second plan by the way! I think I'll go with the second plan. I'm watching a Gas side rod loco on eBay (I'm sure George knows what I'm waffling on about).

O gauge narrow gauge on HO/OO gauge track but with bigger sleepers and a bigger space between the sleepers.

I'm still deciding whether to use track plan one or two :? I have nearly decided on the industry , I'm going for somekind of scrap yard or a sewer railway.

Just a tiny update but I've got a bit more chippy work done on the baseboard. I'm going to scratch build any track that's not a point to save money. When I start buying things I'll update you on prices etc etc.


I'll probably be modelling a sewer railway,
